    The Mediated Agreement comes after all the hard work.  Right?  So what's the big deal?  This session will take new mediators through one of the final steps of a mediation process.  What needs to be there, what needs to be left out, how do mediators help parties write an agreement that will work for them in (potentially) years to come?  Join Judith Lake for a session focusing on writing up the mediated agreement.  Then practice your skills with other learners through role-play or skill drills. 

    This session will be facilitated by Judith Lake.

    An ADRIA Event


    It can be tempting, when parties present strong ideas, language, and feelings, to want to temper those feelings and thoughts with neutralizing language.  It can be tempting when parties are writing up a mediated agreement to control the content and the final agreement.  In these and many other ways, mediators are confronted with alluring opportunities to insert themselves into the conversation and even the resolution.  But, to do so means to invalidate, or worse, to undermine the self-determination of the parties.   

    As mediators and students we need to be conscientious of how our choice of words can sanitize, corrupt, or co-opt a client’s thoughts and feelings or can sink the chances of a sustainable agreement. 

    How can we be true to our role as process managers while honouring the words of the parties?

    What role does our own culture play in the words we do and do not choose?

    You are invited to take an hour to participate in this conversation.  In the second hour, explore these concepts through practice.

    This session will be facilitated by Anita Veldhuisen-Slomp.
